    Since Chiron Corporation's October announcement, that the company could not provide vaccine for distribution in the United States for the 2004-2005 influenza season, CDC has worked closely with vaccine manufacturer Aventis Pasteur and State Health Officials to distribute available vaccine to the most vulnerable individuals and those who care for them.

    CDC appreciates the tremendous efforts from states and urban areas to distribute and administer influenza vaccine to those most in need. CDC discourages use of vaccine for individuals not considered high-priority until we have met the demand for the priority population in every state. CDC will reallocate vaccine from states or urban areas that report having more than enough vaccine to serve their targeted populations to the remaining states or urban areas. High priority populations identified by the Advisory Committee for Immunization Practices (ACIP) for vaccination with inactivated influenza vaccine are identified at http://www.cdc.gov/flu/protect/whoshouldget.htm

    By early October, Aventis Pasteur had already shipped 33 million of its expected total 58 million vaccine doses. Together, CDC and Aventis Pasteur decided to fill orders placed with Aventis Pasteur and Chiron distributors that were easily identifiable as intended for providers serving substantial numbers of high risk patients.
